Heat Map: Where To Drink Cocktails Right Now

View as Map

The Cedars Social's Michael Martensen recently told Reuters that cocktail bars are the next big thing in Dallas--but we're not sure about "next," since North Texas is already dotted with fantastic places to sip an Old Fashioned or a new friend. In one of the hardest assignments in the history of journalism, Eater Dallas reached down deep into the depths of its liver to suss out the best cocktail spots roundabouts these parts. From Fort Worth's Lonesome Dove Western Bistro (Tim Love's William Wallace is a vision in Scotch) to Dallas' first-ever pop-up bar, here are the answers to the question, "Where should I drink right now?" in another one of our signature Eater Heatmaps.
